Average User Score: 7.6Nov 20, 2012L.A. Noire is an interesting game. More of an interactive movie, this game requires your powers of deduction more than your ability to pull off a headshot. Featuring simply amazing visuals, voice acting, and character models, L.A. Noire looks amazing. But this is a game after all, so gameplay needs to be address as well. Aside from the occasional street crime you can stop, or story-based shootout, there's not a lot of game to be had. It really relies on playing a very gritty game of who-done-it in a virtual world. I personally found like some of the cases' were a little too obvious, though. Sometimes I couldn't help like there was a lot of missed potential for a big reveal that this character did it, and you never saw it coming. Most of the time, the criminal's identity never seemed like it was that much of a surprise to me, and made it feel like I was watching a movie that I already knew the ending to. Overall, L.A. Noire probably warrants a playthrough, although odds are you probably will play it just that one time, as the only motivation to play again is to try for 5 stars on all the cases.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.5Nov 20, 2012This is a very nice game for the Vita. I won't lie, it's not the most amazing puzzle game I've played, but it is definitely worth looking into. Featuring some rather nice and smooth looking visuals, this physics & water based puzzle game is enjoyable for someone looking to play something more on the mellow side for the Vita.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.3Nov 20, 2012I would like to start off by saying, no, this is not the old school Resident Evil everyone played back in the day. This is the new form of Resident Evil. This game focuses more towards an action perspective, which I have grown to like. This game is not an attempt to make a modern version of older RE games. This is what RE can evolve into.
I have played the game in (almost) it's entirety. I have beaten all campaigns & Mercenaries maps (all this was played co-op with a friend too). About the only thing I haven't tried are the DLC Merc. maps, and the Agent Hunt mode, which allows you to play as the creatures in another player's campaign. I would break down the game like so:
Gameplay mechanics: 10
Such an improvement over Resident Evil 5. Featuring run n' gun, rolls and dodging, melee fighting, and QTE kills, RE6 brings some fresh new mechanics to the series.
The story for this game is fantastic. It reminds me (in a way) of the movie Vantage Point, where you see some over all major events though several perspectives. The campaign is about X3 longer than RE5, so you definitely get your money's worth in replay value. 4 difficulties (with a 5th being added soon via update), emblems, and earning skill points offer plenty of reasons to play it again. Only problem with the extended length campaign is sometimes it feels like it takes forever to finish a level.
Not breathtaking, but look pretty nice. Looks somewhat better than RE5's graphics.
Voice acting, SFX, and music are superb. Characters convey realistic and believable emotion, SFX & music give that tense survival against all odds kinda feel
Who Should Get This Game:
Die hard fans of the Resident Evil series (who would like it even if it's different from the originals), fans of 3rd person action games, fans of zombie games, people who play co-op games together.
Overall, I would say Resident Evil 6 has exceeded my expectations. I was thinking I would wind up with a pretty alright game, I got something amazing. My friend and I have played this game for 60+ hours, and plan to put many more into it. I have personally beaten all the Resident Evil games in the main series (except 3), and this is by far my favorite Resident Evil game to date.… Expand
